Questions related to NEET
if I made corrections in the neet application form then will I get email after the corrections are made?
No. Let's say you make changes in your NEET application form, now once you click on Final Submit, you will get a confirmation page. That is the proof that your request for corrections have been accepted and the changes have been made because that is the reason a correction window is made available in the first place. They will reflect on your application. Now these changes will reflect on your Admit card as well depending on the details that you have made changes to. But let's say for some reason the changes do not reflect on your admit card once you receive it, you need to immediately reach out to the helpdesk. And NTA will make a note of these changes that did not reflect and shall intimate you that these will show up on your NEET application form and then the counselling registration should you qualify in NEET. And you will be still allowed to appear for the exam. NTA will look into that. But truth be told, you making changes and they not reflecting on the application form are very minima. So do not worry about it. And if you are preparing for NEET, you may as well try our NEET Knockout package: https://learn.careers360.com/knockout-neet-may/ .
how can we know that whether the corrections made in the neet application form are accepted or not
The MHRD has come up with a new schedule for JEE Mains, JEE Advanced and NEET 2020. JEE Main examination will be held between 1st-6th Sept, JEE advanced exam will be held on 27th Sept & NEET examination will be held on 13th Sept. At this point in time. NTA has not spoken about NEET's correction windiw. But NTA has opened JEE Mains correction window and so it is likely that NEET's correction window also might open. So please watch out for updated information on the official website. But if you are enquirin about the corrections that you made the last time, if you have received the confirmation page after making the corrections, that itself means that the changes have been considered. So nothing to be worried about. And if you are preparing for NEET, you may as well try our NEET Knockout package: https://learn.careers360.com/knockout-neet-may/ .
